People Have A Lot Of Feelings About Melania Trump's $51K Coat

Melania Trump’s first outing in the Sicilian sunshine was in a colorful floral applique jacket by Dolce & Gabbana that comes off the rack at $51,000.
Mrs. Trump also carried a matching clutch when she went to lunch with the other spouses of G7 leaders at the historic Elephants Palace hosted by Catania’s mayor.
 
The colour burst comes after a steady wardrobe of mostly black during President Donald Trump’s overseas tour, including a prim black lace dress with a matching mantilla headcover that she wore to meet Pope Francis and a dark jacket with golden detailing on the cuff and collar that she wore for her arrival in Italy, both also by Milan designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
 
Gabbana has been celebrating each appearance. He shared three photos of the floral jacket, worn over a simple white shift dress, with the U.S. first lady looking model-perfect stepping out of an SUV. Gabbana tagged the photo with hearts and a Thank You to @flotus #melaniatrump.
 
Dolce & Gabbana have made Sicily their fashion muse, so it makes sense that she would also wear their designs in Sicily.
Melania Trump’s most adamant supporters in the fashion industry thus far have been the designers behind Dolce & Gabbana. The Italian label was the first major brand to enthusiastically promote that the First Lady was wearing its designs earlier this week, when it regrammed Stefano Gabbana’s posts of Trump wearing D&G while meeting the Pope to the brand’s official Instagram account. The admiration is clearly mutual, as FLOTUS has worn the label while accompanying President Trump to stops in numerous countries over the past week, including Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Italy. She was also decked out in Dolce & Gabbana for her first official White House portrait, as well throughout the campaign trail. So, it’s not all that surprising that she wore the Italian label again — but her latest getup is eliciting quite the reactions on Twitter.
 
While the ready-to-wear label’s designs can frequently have four-figure price tags, the Dolce & Gabbana piece she wore in today is substantially pricier — $51,500, to be exact. The collarless jacket, festooned with multicolored, 3-D flowers, is from the label’s fall 2017 collection. Melania wore the silk coat draped over her shoulders, atop an ivory shift dress, during the last day of the President’s world tour (the final leg is for the G7 summit, held in Sicily today). She carried a matching clutch, complete with a bejeweled clasp, that’s comparatively less expensive, though still rings in at four figures, clocking in at $1,630.
 
Some users pointed out the irony of how the exorbitant piece has been received in contrast to a far-less-expensive, yet still four-figure designer looks worn by Michelle Obama during her time in the White House. (Scrutiny over wardrobe pricing doesn’t solely apply to First Ladies: During Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, she was criticized for her $12K Armani jacket ...that actually cost $7K , technically speaking.)
Below, check out some of the Twitter reactions to Melania’s exquisite but, yes, expensive look.
